Getting What You Want In Life

Friday, January 1st, 2010

What do you want in life?  Do you want more money, a better job, to be fit, lose a little weight, or maybe just have more free time to do the things you enjoy?  Today, right now, is a great time to take a good look at dreams and desires. 

Are you making New Years resolutions? A resolution is a usually a promise to yourself to obtain or do something.  The likelihood that you will really keep that unwritten promise is slim, as many studies have shown. 

Take your resolutions and turn them into actual goals.  Write them down being clear and specific on what you really want.  Write down some action steps.  You must know where you are going in order to get there. 

Grab our free CD and listen to Ken BrockBank speak on how to achieve your goals.  It’s an inspirational audio!  Listen straight from your computer or download on your mp3.

First Step in Setting Goals

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

The very first thing you need to do in the goal setting process is to begin with the end in mind.  In other words, how does the movie end? 

Once you can see the end, you need to ask yourself a question.

What is the purpose of my goal?  Having a purpose will give you reasons to pursue your goal.  Each day the choices you make are easy because you have a purpose. 

Everyone will have a different purpose but it should have a positive outcome and should make a difference in the lives of one or more persons.  You may have more than one purpose so include all of your purposes. 

Now that you know the reason you are pursuing a goal, write a present positive statement.  What this means is to write a sentence in present tense as if your goal has already been achieved.

Example 1:  Your end of the movie is that your children will be educated, successful adults and you want to provide the means for that outcome.

Write:  My children are happy and successful.  I provided love, encouragement and financial assistance helping them through college which aided in them becoming responsible adults.

Example 2:  Let’s say your end of the movie is that you are financially free from debt.

Write:  I am debt free and have the freedom and time to ____________________.

This is a brief description of step one on setting goals.  Think it through and write down your purpose.

How Goals Impact Your Life

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

In our post Plan Your Life, we promised to help you understand how significantly goals can impact your life.  When you set goals and follow the steps to achieve those goals, you will be amazed at the positive outcome it will have on you and your life.

By setting goals in the financial area, you can plan for financial independence so you don’t have to rely on anyone else. You should be able to choose to work; choose to do as you please.

By setting a goal of physical fitness and nutrition, it will enable you to accomplish anything you want. You will be healthy and fit and your mind will be clear, enabling you to reach for and work toward your goals.

By setting a goal of spiritual fulfillment, you will understand who you are and why you are here. You will know your purpose in life and be able to strive for that purpose.

By setting a goal of emotional stability, you can accept personal responsibility for your successes and failures. You will be able to deal with any emotional challenges that cross your path in life and continue to move forward instead of being dragged down.

Your goals will be specific to your life and the direction you want to go. The four examples above show how using just these four areas could impact the decisions you make every day.

The Importance of Goals in Your Life

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

In the last post, we promised to share some reasons why goals are essential.  Understanding the true importance of having clear specific written goals is the beginning of your journey to success.
 

The key to happiness is having dreams.
A goal is a dream with a deadline.

   Goals and why they are vital:  

  • You can’t hit a target you can’t see. There is no possible way of you getting what you want in life until you know exactly what you want. With goals you’ll be able to hit the bull’s eye.
  • Goals generate enthusiasm and give you a purpose with direction. With the excitement your goals create, you’ll work toward your objective with unfettered drive and determination.
  • Goals create confidence. They motivate you toward achievement with unshakeable assurance.
  • Goals produce discipline – making you mind yourself. Desire without discipline is disastrous. By just going through the actions you will confuse activity with achievement. Shuffling papers and not getting anything accomplished is just action; Tension relieving, not goal achieving.
  • If you don’t have goals, you are forced to focus on obstacles. Once you set a goal every decision you make all day long will affect that goal achieving or not achieving process. If you know the goal, you can say “Will this get me closer to my goal or farther from it?” It makes every decision process easy. It’s really simple when you have goals; there is no frustration or conflict.
  • You are successful if you have goals. Success is a journey not a destination. You become successful when you start working toward your goals. The definition of success is the continuous journey toward the achievement of predetermined worthwhile goals. Enjoy the journey.
  • Clear specific written goals fire up your reticular activating system (RAS) which a goal seeking region of your brain. RAS is responsible for motivation and achievement. It creates the process of arriving at a goal once the goal has been defined.
  • Your goals are an extension of your values. Goals keep your values in the forefront. Happiness is when you are living consistent with your values. Know what your values are and set goals from them.

What do you want?   You can achieve anything you want in life.

The key to success is making dreams with
a deadline come true.
